Jessica Simpson is teaming up with her "Dukes of Hazzard" co-star Willie Nelson for her next variety show, "Nick & Jessica's Tour of Duty," airing May 23 at 9 p.m. on ABC. In the couple's third variety special, Nick Lachey and Simpson perform for more than 6,000 service men and women at the Ramstein Air Base in Germany, starting by exiting a C-130 aircraft and singing "R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A." The concert also includes Simpson and Lachey paying homage to Bob Hope with "Thanks for the Memories," Lachey's duet with Brian McKnight on "Superstition," Nelson's duet with Simpson on "These Boots Were Made for Walkin' " from the "Hazzard" soundtrack," Big & Rich's performance of "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)," and an all-star finale of "America the Beautiful." Nick and Jessica also take a few lessons while they're on the German base, as Nick learns to fly an F-16 fighter jet and Jessica goes to the rifle range before heading to the U.S. Army base in Tikrit, Iraq, to surprise the troops there.
Sounds truly wonderful. I'm going to Atlanta now, so I probably won't be posting anything until Monday.
